Cricket Wireless, the AT&T subsidiary, is going to now allow customers on their Smart ($50) and Pro ($60) plans to use data roaming in Mexico and Canada at no extra cost to them. This means that whatever your data allotment is here in the US, you can use that same data pool elsewhere in North America.
Of course, Cricket isn’t saying what the speeds you will be getting in those countries, but it’s still worth it to not have to worry, right? Plus, Cricket already had unlimited calling and texting between Mexico, Canada, and the US.
Since Cricket is an AT&T subsidiary, it’ll be interesting to see if this feature graduates from the pre-paid market to the post-paid official AT&T market. They’re most likely testing the waters here, so hopefully we see something from AT&T proper in the future, much like what T-Mobile has with LTE in all three territories.
Are any of you on Cricket Wireless? Are you glad you’ll be able to go to Canada and Mexico and use your phone just like here in the US?
